That is what I am using! I like them but willing to try to boost the cooling power.

Of course, running more voltage. Not sure if the R1 Works fan is rated for 8.4V but it'd be interesting if someone had time to compare them back to back.

Hmmm you seem to have both fans....

Maybe ask R1 Wurks if their fan can run at 8.4v without self destructing.

The picture looks promising, but is the ampdraw really 5.1A?
This sounds a lot for a small fan.

OK the 0.5 Ampdraw is much better than the 5.1 shown on the first picture.

The picture is showing an adjustable power supply that is supplying power to the fan. Not reading off output.

It is supplying 8.4V to the fan, which is normally the battery output when fully charged. The current was adjusted to 5 amps, which is probably what would be put out in a normal setup.

I've assumed this as saw the picture, but I asked to prove it.
BTW there are some server fans out there with a current flow of 2+ Amp.

As you can see the other motor is still soldered to the ESC. I will run this with and without the fans to see what results I get on Friday. I'll update afterwards with results. Hope it works.




I went up twice and the temp stayed at 127-137 on all three runs of 7 minutes.

Any reason why your video is 24 seconds long and the Superior fan is almost 5 minutes long? Did your fan not make it 5 minutes? Also it appears that you're holding the fans at different distances away from your scale, you should really build a jig to hold the fans over the scale to get a more accurate reading instead of just guessing at how far away your holding the fans.
